Rear Wheel Brake Fluid Leak

As previously mentioned in another thread my '87 110 failed its inspection.

Might have more to do with the other issue than the break issue but alas here I am.

My right rear wheel shows signs of a break fluid leak. It isn't that bad as the truck runs and stops fine. The back of the wheel shows a break fluid spider web but not as bad as I have seen on other vehicles with a fluid leak.

What parts and procedures should I be looking for?

Thank you

You sure it is the brakes and not the hub seal? If you have drum breaks might just have a leaky cylinder. Also check the integrity of the brake lines. Old lines can be rusting bad enough to cause a leak.

Thanks. I haven't laid down to give it a very close look. Hopefully I'll be looking this weekend.
